What Jagged Journeys’ Readers Are Saying:

“I enjoy Jagged Journeys because the stories are interesting. The characters are believable and comparable to people I may come across in real life.” —Katie Patterson, Pennsylvania

“I love Ida’s books and stories.  After reading the latest chapter in latest edition, I responded with, ‘Ida, you better have Gita marry Basu and not that old geezer by the time you finish this story.’  Needless to say, she gets my full attention with her writing.” —John Merrick,  Genesee, Idaho
